The Elanora home where Wendy Sleeman was allegedly kidnapped by her estranged son Slade Murdok.
The Gold Coast home of a woman who was allegedly kidnapped and murdered by her estranged son has sold for $1.5m.
The waterfront property formerly owned by Elanora woman Wendy Sleeman was listed for 64 days before changing hands, with the sale to a local couple settled in September.
Police launched a major search operation for Ms Sleeman, 61, after blood and a small fire were found in her home in January.

Ms Sleeman’s body was found in the boot of a car in Brisbane two days later.
Her estranged son, Slade Murdok, was charged with a string of serious offences including murder, kidnapping, unlawful stalking, attempted arson and assault.
The six-bedroom, three-bathroom home on a 989 sqm block with tidal waterway views was marketed by Noel Mills and Michael Power, of PRD Real Estate.
Mr Mills would not disclose any details about the sale, but noted the campaign was conducted with viewing by appointment only, with no street signage.
“I can’t pass on any information about the sale of the property. It was a very positive outcome for the family,” he said.
